that other thread got me thinking - what's your favorite Grateful Dead traditional - ONLY ONE ALLOWED!! although I guess specifying a time period (like 1960's And We Bid - which I would put down second if I was allowed!!) and elec/acous only will work?

Deep Elem (electric)

They won't let me have "Death Don't" so you probably can't get it either.
Thanks for playing!

Davis got credit for Death Don't..? I'm probably wrong, but I thought it was "traditional" before even he. It's all good. I'm still hanging on to I Know You, Rider.

The Rev is the one that gets the credit. Look on that new version of Live Dead its labeled Rev. Gary Davis w/o the traditional. My best knowledge of the Rev is he wrote it and I believe he is credited with it in all music publications.

Oh yeah I dont know if you got my earlier post about the Rev. Samson and Deliah was written by him also but to answer your question he wasnt revered at first but converted like a lot of old blues man did when they got closer to death. Its said he never played the blues again after the conversion considering it the devils music.

The Grateful Dead Lyric and Song Finder lets you search for songs they performed based on who wrote the song. You can find the traditionals here: http://www3.clearlight.com/~acsa/introjs.htm?longlist.htm

Just go to "Find GD Covers" and then choose "Traditional" from the list.

Thats a hard one because there are so many but I would say anything sung by Pig. He was to me the greatest thing that happened to that band. It was a different animal with him on board and an amazing one at that. But if I needed to narrow it down than its Lovelight.

I do like alot of the Bobby country covers too, man this is a hard question.

Ssars - traditionals (don't know who wrote it) not covers - there were not that many (30 at most?)

I am amazed at that last post u wrote about spinners (bottom of thread at this pt) - did you live in the house?
How many peoplke are we talking about - 10?

no man I didt live there I was there next door neighbors by a few houses. A friend of mine and myself went there to see what weirdness was happening over there. They were such jerks at shows we had to see what the story was. Anyhow, different story and I dont want to corrupt another thread. Anyhow I am sorry I could have written less harsh. Man I have a ton of music I can turn you on to. No they had a pretty big following I cant say for sure but 100 or so maybe more, they had a house in Berkeley and one up in Ft. Bragg (if I remember right). They had enough to be noticed in mainstream magazines and newspapers as a cult. And that "Jerry wasn't god" qoute is bolony. I saw a pray shrine to him in thier house.

Oh traditionals sorry bad habit I dont follow directions well.

Its got to be "He was a Friend of Mine" Strange I couldnt find who wrote it anywhere. Its real traditional then.

ssag - don't want to nitpick ya, but He Was a Friend of Mine is a portion of a song entitled Just a Hand To Hold written by Mark Spoelstra.

Just trying to be informative as opposed to anything else :)

p.s. kudos to you man, - atleast you are trying to open ducats eyes to the wonders of the musical world out there. there is just so so so so much!! i mean holy crap, can you imagine if Phil or Jerry listened to one kind of music??? certainly, there would have been no Grateful Dead as we knew them. sad when i hear a head only listens to the dead

After a little googling I am not sure whos right. I think the Dead's version they sang was from the lyrics of Spoelstra but the basis of the song is much much older like Peggy-O or Fennerio is. I earlest recording by Spoelstra of the song I can find is 1968 but I know Dylan recorded it in 1962. I'll do more research.

yeah I concurr with myself the oldest record by Spoelstra is 1963 so the song has to be older because there older versions of it by other artists.

Here's mine...

From Wikipedia: The Bonnie Lass o' Fyvie is a Scottish folk song about a thwarted romance between a soldier and a girl. Like many folk songs, the authorship is unattributed, there is no strict version of the lyrics, and it is often referred to by its opening line There once was a troop o' Irish dragoons. The song is also known by a variety of other names, the most common of them being Peggy-O.

I was at a JS show and Paul Kanter went on with some story that it was the oldest known song written in the English language. I dont if its true but thought I would add it to the convo.

Frozen Logger - some reference it as traditional while others give lyrical and musical credit to James Stevens - the version that Weir played has the lyrics that James Stevens wrote.
